Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
About 70% of the UK's land area is given over to agriculture, so this is a subject representing an important part of the country's economy. Typical starting jobs for graduates in agriculture include agricultural science, farming and farm management, but also, less obviously, surveying, estates and auction work, heritage and conservation. Jobs in sport are also popular with this group. Jobs for agriculture graduates are often in rural areas. In 2012, the south of England, particularly Essex, Kent, Gloucestershire and Devon, were the most common regions in which graduates of the subject started their careers.
